    Spreading to form a carpet of slender fronds, which when they first emerge have a bronze-red flush, this shade-loving evergreen fern looks great on the woodland floor. Plant it where it can settle in undisturbed and then become colonised with other shade-lovers.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould or garden compost into the planting hole. Keep well watered during the growing season.
